During the ‘Made by Google Event‘ held in New York, Google offered a sneak peek of an upcoming “generative AI” feature slated for integration into the Fitbit app in the coming year, as part of the Fibit Labs initiative.

This app, designed to synchronize with innovative wearables such as the Google Pixel 2 Watch and the Fitbit Charge 6, will harness artificial intelligence to scrutinize trends in a user’s fitness capabilities, thereby furnishing valuable insights into their overall performance.

The Fitbit application will introduce a chatbot capable of engaging in conversations to provide comprehensive post-activity assessments. For instance, after tracking a run, the chatbot will furnish users with detailed statistics on the activity, encompassing metrics like overall pace and elevation gain.

Beyond these surface-level statistics, the AI tool will delve deeper, offering explanations for one’s performance based on relevant health data such as sleep patterns, recovery history, and past workouts. If a workout feels unusually strenuous, the app will investigate related factors to elucidate the reasons behind the perceived difficulty.

Moreover, the Fitbit app’s capabilities extend beyond mere conversational interactions with the AI. Google demonstrated its ability to offer visual feedback through charts that visualize how performance has evolved over time.
